Is it possible or has anyone attempted to view or screen record an unattended session? I have a desktop flow that will occasionally fail during one part of a long process during browser automation, but have not been able to identify what is or isn't occurring that is causing it to fail.
To the best of my knowledge you are specifically blocked from seeing what is happening on-screen in an unattended flow run. But have you looked at the Monitor section of the flow studio? You can review logs from previous runs of a desktop flow. It provides a good bit of information on each step in the flow and should help you figure out what step failed and why.
Hello, unfortunately, for this specific flow, that hasn't been much help. This flow is 300+ steps that continously runs in a loop and will randomly encounter an issue somewhere around the same 30 steps, but I haven't been able to identify what is exactly happening at that moment. When accessing the flows to analyze, many times it will say "there's an issue starting your desktop flow" even though it has been running for hours, other times it will list the steps which seem to make no sense based off the actual flow steps, and other times it will have a screenshot of just a blank screen. All the steps will error to the same subflow so I have thought about creating a different subflow for each of the 30 steps to see if the issue is occuring during many or just a few steps, but was hoping for a quicker/easier solution to "watch" it running.
This is a great idea! I am going to give this a try and hopefully this will be able to give insight into what is/isn't occuring. Thank you!
@frankc9 Use Get last error in every subflow, if an error occurs take a screenshot, save the screenshot in the log folder else send it through mail.
